Finding talented people to join CLE Solutions is a major part of how we remain competitive. So, we strive to stay on top of the qualities that make certain people high performers. One personality trait that has time and time again proven to be a key for success is conscientiousness. Researchers are finding that it impacts achievement in almost every aspect of life.

Conscientiousness is the quality of being careful or vigilant. People who exhibit it want to perform tasks well and tend to plan ahead to do so. They get better grades, commit fewer crimes, and even stay married longer.

CLE Solutions’ outreach campaigns require energy and drive from our associates. So, finding people who are dedicated to doing the job well is invaluable for us. Also, conscientious individuals tend to have a lot of grit. This means they don’t give up when faced with obstacles and work hard to find avenues for success.

Better yet, conscientious people tend to live longer. Their forward thinking and focus on keeping organized avoid stressful situations down the road. Even when faced with difficulty, those who think ahead will rarely find themselves surprised. This means fewer stress-related health issues such as high blood pressure.

Other characteristics that are key success drivers include agreeableness, extroversion, neuroticism, and openness to experience. While each of these can help in different careers, conscientiousness is the only one that tends to cut across many roles.

Understanding how certain traits affect success allows us to build a stronger team. Learn more about the CLE Solutions recruitment approach by following us on Twitter.
